Parquet Courts Brood With Puppets in ‘Human Performance’ Video

Are puppet-themed videos making a comeback? Days after Aesop Rock the Doll played with his cat in “Kirby,” Parquet Courts debut their own puppet-heavy video for Human Performance‘s excellent title track.

There are fewer cats and a lot more NSFW action involving — you guessed it — puppets. A bespectacled marionette mournfully sings the lyrics, while a middle-aged couple goes through the trials of romance: orgies, spankings after a card game, and other regular chill stuff like that.

Watch the “Human Performance” video, directed by Phil Collins (the artist, not the “In the Air Tonight” dude), below.
